Railways of Mann: Scene & Unseen (Paperback)
The railways of the Isle of Man offer a fascinating insight into public transport in the Victorian era. This small island in the Irish Sea is home to no fewer than seven operating railways and tramways, as well as a transport museum and railway relics preserved 'in situ'. The author, a well known transport photographer, undertook a tour of the island in 2019, and was granted privileged access behind the scenes to areas usually off limits to the general public. The result, published here, is a comprehensive illustrated survey of the island's lines, which will prove a valuable historical record, particularly of the Douglas Horse Tramway, which was going through a major transformation at the time of the visit.
